    <center><h2><a href=http://www.misleader.org/daily_mislead/Read.asp?fn=df08302004.html>Bush Misleads on Global Warming</a></h2></center>


    <blockquote>Campaigning for the presidency in 2000, George W. Bush promised to place mandatory caps on carbon dioxide emissions to control global warming.1 After he assumed office - in what was widely seen as payback for the energy industry that helped finance his campaign - Bush quickly reneged on his pledge.2 Bush claimed such regulations were inappropriate because there was no clear scientific link between human activity and global warming.3

    But last week, a report signed by Bush's Secretary of Commerce Don Evans and Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham,4 concluded, "rising temperatures in North America are due in part to human activity."5 The report found that global warming was already causing draught, damaging farms and changing migration patterns.6

    Nevertheless, the Bush administration is still content to do nothing. John H. Marburger, the president's top science adviser, said the report has "no implications for policy."7 Bush himself denies that there has been any change in the administration's position. Asked by the New York Times to explain the switch, Bush replied "Ah, did we?...I don't think so."8</blockquote>

    For those who seem to take pleasure in pointing out Kerry's apparent "flip-flops" on many issues, I would like to point out Dubbyuh's tendency to "flip-flop" on issues. More appropriately, for Dubbyuh, the term is "bait-and-switch"...Take a public stand on a given issue, and when the doors are closed and the deals cut, take exactly the opposite position with the policy that comes out.

    We see the same pattern being repeated at the RNC convention...Trot out party moderates to reassure voters, then drop the hammer when the hardline ideologues wield the power.

    Bully, I know this will disappoint you, but there is yet another Bush flipflop. First he says we can never really win the war on terror, now he says we will. Tis a sad day. :rolleyes:

    Bush made clear his point today. As he HAS SAID BEFORE, this war will NOT end with a big parade, the falling of an empire, etc. We will know it is over, when Islamic Terrorism STOPs. Until then, we won't really know.

    Spin, spin, spin..... that is all you guys have.

    It's more than Dubbyuh and his loyal, cognitively impaired supporters have.

    Faith-based science. Ignore the facts and keep on wishing it ain't so. Such is Dubbyuh's view of the world.

    I think it's funny how double-standards are the norm for liberals. Liberals believe more in evolution, rather than faith-based explanations, as far as life goes. But when the idea that the Earth is still changing, as it did millions of years ago, they say no, it's our fault. The earth has stopped evolving. If there is such thing as global warming, then why, oh why was I wearing fleece outside, and could see my breath at 7am, 10 days ago, when it was the middle of August, when normal temps should have been around 65-70 overnight, yet parts of MN dropped to as low as 35??!!! In the middle of friggin' August!!!! 50% of this summer has been one where you opt for jeans and sweater rather than shorts and t-shirt. Most of the summer, the public (and private) pools have been warmer than the air. This is way off from what MN normally has for highs and lows in summer.

    Liberals seem to think that warm=cool and cool=warm, cuz if there is such thing as global WARMING, then all words must mean the opposite of what they are.

    Well, global warming is a TREND, meaning certain days, weeks, and months may be colder on average, but MEAN temperature is rising. So this month being rather cool in MN doesn't mean global warming is false. Global warming doesn't mean that every day is going to be hotter than the last until our skin is melting off.

    Today was cold = evidence against global warming :poop:
